This weekend promises to be warm (OK, hot) and sunny. So, today’s the day I start working on painting those pieces of furniture for my studio. I’m chomping at the bit to start unpacking things, and putting stuff away so I can start making stuff again.

Yes, there is actual progress! In my studio! And I have photos to prove it! Spousal Unit loves me so much, he kept his promise to help set up my studio space today, even though it was about 187 degrees and 318% humidity. (OK, I am exaggerating, but only a little.) So, I thought I’d post a little “In Progress” to give you an idea of what I’m working on…

This is looking to be a lovely, hot, non-rainy weekend, which is really great, since it’s a 3-day weekend, and I SO want to start working on my space! No rain and warm temps should let me get started on repainting my furniture pieces for my studio. All I have to do now is decide what I want the finished pieces to look like.

My, my, my! Ask for a little inspiration, and some fun and funky ideas, do a little Googling, and stand back and watch the magic happen!

My Muse has been working overtime lately. Now she’s decided to give me just a hint of an idea for decorating my soon-to-be crafting studio. I have several old dressers and a small cupboard which are all mismatched and unattractive, but functional. And, since I already have them, they won’t cost me anything to use them for storage in my studio.

Just when you think, “Yep, these are my only choices”, along comes Inspiration to bash you in the head with her little wand, and prove that, indeed, there are more choices, more options. Things you’d never thought of before, explode, fully grown, from your head, like the birth of Minerva/Athena.

Well, I suppose this counts as a “creative” project on two levels: first, I am designing a small workspace; second, it’s for my creative projects. This will eventually become my “studio” for all my crafty pursuits. I even hope to put my laptop down there, and use it to work on some digital art stuff once in a while.

Moving from one home to another can be a stressful time for anyone, but it can be especially stressful for creatives who work with lots of different materials, or materials that need special storage.

My family recently relocated from the West Coast to the East Coast. Unfortunately, most of my crafting supplies, tools and equipment are now in storage, waiting for me to find space and set up a work area in our new home. Due to space constraints (our new home is about 2/3 the size of our last one), my new workspace will likely be in the garage, which isn’t really suitable for storing vehicles anyway.
